Chacin progressing nicely after tough 2012
DENVER -- Rockies right-hander Jhoulys Chacin finished the regular season strong, after missing nearly four months with a nerve issue in the right side of his chest, and he appears to be improving in the Venezuelan Winter League.

Chacin is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in three starts for Caracas. His best start was last Sunday, when he went seven innings and held Margarita to one run on six hits, with four strikeouts against two walks.

"I was trying to pitch as many innings as possible, and our offense and defense helped me out a lot," Chacin said to reporter Dayron Padilla of the Meridano newspaper. "The Rockies told me to come to Venezuela so I could work more on my command. Thank God I'm achieving that goal and they are happy with the job I've done so far."
